A leading equipment leasing and finance company continues its aggressive manufacturer program expansion initiatives.
LEAF Commercial Capital, Inc. (“LEAF”) has announced the continued expansion of its Major Account Program (MAP) platform with two personnel moves.
Lori Wilson, who previously served LEAF in a program management capacity, has taken on a new role in business development as Director–Major Account Programs. She will be charged with creating new MAP relationships within LEAF’s core markets, including software and technology manufacturer and distributor programs that sell direct and through the channel.
Bob Wenke, a former LEAF employee, has returned to the company in the capacity of Director–Major Account Development. He will manage key accounts in a variety of equipment collaterals including healthcare and light industrial, which are supported by LEAF operations in Moberly, MO and Philadelphia, PA.
“Lori has done a fantastic job for LEAF in supporting strategic initiatives for our MAP partners,” said Bryan Spence, Vice President of Major Account Programs at LEAF. “As a result of the convergence of today’s networked technologies, which includes more traditional office products, there is a greater requirement for better integration of financing and servicing solutions. To meet the needs of these changing market dynamics, Lori will be focused on promoting LEAF’s cutting edge Managed Print Services and Managed Services platform. I am confident that she will make a significant impact by identifying, closing, and supporting new MAP opportunities.” Ms. Wilson has been with LEAF since 2007. Prior to LEAF, Ms. Wilson spent 15 years at Citicapital, in the role of VP/Director of Originations. She graduated from Truman State University and resides in the Moberly, MO area.
Mr. Wenke, who held various sales and program management roles at LEAF, brings considerable industry expertise and product knowledge to expand LEAF’s existing Major Account Programs. “I’m pleased to have Bob back on the LEAF team,” said Mr. Spence. “Bob is a perfect fit for his new role here, and we are very excited to have him on board.” Mr. Wenke holds a BS in Finance as well as an MBA from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. In addition to his program management experience, he has also worked in both sales and operations with several financial services companies including Canon Financial, DLL and CIT. Mr. Wenke, who resides in the Philadelphia area, will work out of corporate headquarters.
